When Microcut/Colter & Peterson (C&P) exhibits at the February 16-18 Graphics of the Americas (GOA) Show in Florida, it will showcase the new Microcut PLUS Cutter Control System. The next-generation paper cutter control package is the latest development for the popular Microcut brand, which has over 30,000 installations worldwide. Microcut/Colter & Peterson (Booth 533) will also feature several different sizes of the automated back-gauge system. “The Microcut PLUS Cutter Control System is a unique, turnkey clamp/control system with the newest electronics that brings any flywheel cyclical paper cutter up to current standards,” said Richard Peereboom, C&P’s Sales Manager for Latin America. “This the first time most people who attend GOA will see the new 15” Microcut PLUS Cutter Control System. It was a big hit last year at drupa.”
The new system is designed to make any print shop’s paper cutters more productive. It can take on work others can’t handle in the same amount of time. The major difference is that this model features new software with enhanced graphics for converted JDF files, and other benefits that make it more user-friendly. “The new software update,” Peereboom added, “will be an operator’s best friend. We’ve added new graphics so it visually shows the operator what’s being cut. This is especially helpful in shops that may have inexperienced operators. The program is colour coordinated so users will know sooner what can be put aside and what is waste. The time savings for any shop can be significant.” Peereboom added that Microcut PLUS is a great selection for larger-format printers with its wide format touchscreen and microfacts features. Programs can be uploaded from the network connection with a USB device using CIP3 and CIP4 files, and no additional hardware or software is necessary.
